Scholarship and selection tests aim to identify the very best students for elite schools and accelerated learning programs. Many outstanding students sit these tests, but there are relatively few scholarship and select-entry places offered. As a result, preparing, applying and sitting for a scholarship or selection test can be a challenging process for students and parents - but this experience can also provide an opportunity for students to develop their academic skills and abilities in valuable ways.

Scholarship and Selection Tests: A guide for students and parents aims to help students and parents to better understand scholarship and selection tests, so that students can develop their full potential and parents can assist their children to do their best when it counts.

This second edition contains updated advice on preparing for scholarship and selection tests, including all-new:

  • Information on dealing with gifted and talented students
  • Resources on select-entry accelerated, high-achievement and gifted and talented programs
  • Details on specific scholarship and selection tests
  • Case studies and insights from participating schools

It also includes a limited number of example questions and sample answers with detailed explanations; strategies and approaches; suggestions on how students can develop the skills and abilities that the tests target; as well as guidance on how to manage expectations and better understand results.

Please note: This book is not a practice test and does not contain multiple practice material questions.
